Night eyes for the paras [AAD16D3]

16 September 2016

Belarussian optics specialist BelOMO Holding is presenting a range of observation equipment on the Unitary Enterprise Lemt stand (Hangar 2, Stand W10).

The company undertakes various research and development activities, and also manufactures optical equipment for military and security forces. Among its products is a new night-vision system for paratroops that combines an NV/M-19 night vision monocular with a TV/M-19 thermal vision monocle on a single mounting base. The base can be worn on a helmet or over a mask.

The system provides effective detection of targets out to a range of 800m. The monocle components could be used separately if required.

BelOMO claims the system offers easy switching between units, while its low weight and compact size reduce head movement discomfort. The units can also be used in conjunction with red dot and optical sights for weapons firing.
